Democratizing governance, strengthening institutions, and combatting corruption for sustainable progress. Initiatives include balancing state powers, enhancing institutional independence, fostering inclusive governance, and empowering local communities. These changes prioritize accountability, transparency, and long-term planning for a brighter future.

Democratic & Constitutional Reforms​

The Democratic and Constitutional reforms envisaged under the GTP will include but not be limited to the following areas:

  1. Addressing the imbalance of power between the organs of state to ensure effective checks and balances.
  2. Strengthening independent Constitutional bodies to make them more efficient and effective, and reduce the incidence of direct Executive control over such bodies.
  3. The establishment of a second Chamber that will provide an entry point for different stakeholders and non-state actors to participate in the governance regime of the country.
  4. Review Constitutional provisions that limit the participation of dual citizens in the governance of the country.
  5. The entrenchment of long-term development planning which will ensure the following:
    • Prioritization and greater focus on strategic sectors
    • Setting realizable development targets and outcomes
    • Efficient and effective mobilization of resources to execute projects and programmes.
    • Manifestos of political parties and independent presidential candidates should be developed only within the context of the National Development Plan.
  6. Remedying inefficiencies in public service delivery and ensuring accountability for results.
  7. Dealing substantively with corruption through strengthening of relevant institutions, introduction of new legislations to deal with corruption, compliance and enforcement of existing laws and regulations, enhanced citizens oversight and advocacy on corruption, and promoting leadership by example.
  8. Introducing reforms in the electoral process to move Ghana beyond the duo-poly and the dominance of two Parties, and allow for coalitions between different political parties in the governance architecture.

Decentralization & Local Governance

New policy recommendations to deepen decentralization and enhance local governance, will include the following:

  1. The Election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives.

  2. Introducing greater financial autonomy for local government entities.

  3. Enhancing the role of Traditional Authorities in the development agenda of local government.

  4. Establishing rural community offices to provide facilities for local government administration at the rural level.

National Security
& Defence Optimization

Deploying resources to strengthen National Security and Defence Mechanisms and Infrastructure, to deal substantively with emerging security threats and challenges, particularly in the Sahalian region.

Downsizing Government

The architecture of Government will be overhauled by consolidating some existing Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, and thereby reducing the size of the government. This will mean running a lean Government structure that will ensure operational efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of public services.

Strategic Engagement With The International Community

Ghana’s diplomatic and economic relations with the International Community under the GTP will be predicated on the principle of ‘positive neutrality’, based on the strategic interests of Ghana, as well as our shared commitments for the preservation of peace around the world and respect for humanity.
